Podcast 109 – How Long Should Your Workouts Be?


senior fitness with meredith

Hello and thank you for joining us on todays episode!

When it comes to working out we all come from different levels of fitness and abilities. We have different strengths and things that could use improvement.

But how long should we be working out to achieve these things?

The duration of your workouts play a key role in whether or not the exercises you are doing are still helping your body or putting unnecessary wear and tear. Avoiding extra strain on your already fatigued muscles can cause problems down the road and worst of all we may not even know that we’re doing it.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

1). Why we decided to dedicate a full episode to this topic and why we often get comments and questions about how long a workout should be from around the world.

2). Why there is a “perception” that a workout has to be a certain amount of time in order to be effective and why this isn’t always the case.

3). How the duration of a workout varies depending on what you are training, either weight or resistance or more cardio. Why its more about how your are training instead of how long you train for.

4). How you can still get in an effective workout if you are short on time.

5). Why getting in some kind of exercise on a regular schedule even if it is limited, is always better than not doing anything at all.


Thank you again for joining us on this podcast. Knowing the best exercise durations in conjunction with the right exercises can help you stay in the game for a long time to come.  Keeping your body healthy by maximizing your ideal workout time is just as important as knowing which workouts are right for you.

We hope you enjoyed this episode and it helped add value to your already growing fitness knowledge.

Til the next episode!
